    So glad to see you are progressing and posting! And emoticon on the losses!!!
    What has helped me A LOT with that flabbiness is Pilates. It was really hard to get into at first because some of those muscles hadn't been activated in years! But now I just love it and it has really helped me tone up. There's still some flab---don't get me wrong---but I look and feel much better and Pilates is the reason. Technique matters a lot so a class with a trained instructor is best, but if you can't get that, then maybe try a video or two. I promise it will help if you keep at it.

    Joanna,

    You've done a fabulous job, with God's temple, and I'm going to echo what Nemetzc said. Girl, I've lost quite a bit of weight also, and I told one of my Curves trainers, that I was going under the knife to have all this loose skin chopped off, as my apron is halfway down to my knees, my legs, arms, stomach, butt, just everything is like a wrinkled old lady. To me it's disgusting, and I want it gone, there's about 25 lbs. of it. In fact, I should be able to fly with my arm flaps. But my trainer told me not to do it, as she was in the same boat. She said a year ago, she looked like me as she had lost more than 100 lbs. and I had a hard time believing her, as she fit, trim, and a Curves trainer. I asked her how she toned up so nicely, and she said working the Curves circuit. She explained that it took exactly one year for the transformation, but it was done and she looks GREAT! She asked me if I would give it a year and I agreed, but I also told her that whatever is there is being cut off, after the year! So just know that you're not the only one struggling a bit here, and just emoticon God has everything in Divine Order, so it will be done in His time and not ours.

    Be blessed,

    I know it isn't what you want to hear, but- try not to focus on that belly hate. You've only got 15lb more to go....just look at what you've accomplished!!!

    Try to think of how awesome you've been, and how you just have a little more to go, and know that it'll work out in the end.

    Keep up the great work, and have a great weekend!!
